Hi All,

Sorry for cross-posting - It would be great to see you or your students 
at this hackathon the day before IPAW. If you have a provenance 
infrastructure it would be a great chance to educate some others in it. 
Alternatively, if you want to get your hands dirty with developing 
provenance apps, this is the event for you!



Call for Participation: Provenance Hackathon at IPAW 2010

The provenance community has built a range of infrastructure for 
recording and querying provenance, which has increased in capabilities 
and maturity over time. However, there has been much less focus on 
realizing end-user applications of provenance. The Provenance Hackathon 
aims is to see whether we can quickly build end-user applications that 
demonstrate the unique benefits of provenance using existing infrastructure.

To foster cross-collaboration and to get things done, we hope to have 
two types of attendees, app hackers and infrastructure hackers. App 
hackers have experience in building end user applications (web apps, 
iphone apps, android apps, desktop apps,), infrastructure hackers have 
experience in a particular provenance infrastructure. This is a way for 
an app hacker to get direct help with a given provenance infrastructure 
and a way for the infrastructure hackers to help someone get to know 
their infrastructure. Alternatively, we also allow you to work on your own.

A panel of judges will rate the hackathon apps focusing on their use of 
provenance and all around coolness. $250 dollars in prizes will be 
handed out.

When and Where?
June 14, 2010 collocated with IPAW starting at 10 am. Food and drinks 
will be provided throughout the day.

Send email to Paul Groth (pgroth@few.vu.nl) with your hacker type and a 
couple of keywords. If you already have a team let me know that as well.

The Provenance Hackathon is sponsored by LarKC: The Large Knowledge 
Collider project, which is developing a platform for massive distributed 
incomplete reasoning.
